“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which
have the potential to turn a life around.”
– Leo Buscaglia
This is a beautiful way to live your life. To really care about others. To really extend yourself by giving love to others. By being present to others through kindness. This may turn another’s life around, but in fact you are really helping yourself even more. You attract back what you give out, by being a channel of peace, rather than adversity- you bring more peace to your life. I have always wanted to be the kind of person who brings sunshine with them as I walk into a room. I imagine that is why there are so many people that I attract who bring sunshine to mine. I strive each day to be a better person than I was the day before, sometimes I succeed, sometimes not. But as St Therese says, it is in the small things that make the world a beautiful place. It is the small acts of love, that contribute to the beauty that already is there. So every day I keep trying to do my best, using impeccable words, not making assumptions, I have the potential to turn my life around as well as another. I encourage you all to do the same. Something to think about as we start a new day! So smile!
